One writer has commented, “The times smell of sunset.”
He was referring to the turmoil around the world, not to mention the insanity our nation is experiencing.
This is not new:
Back in 1944, Will Durant in Caesar and Christ wrote:
“The greatest question of our time is not communism versus individualism, not Europe versus America, not even the East versus the West; it is whether men can live without God.”
No one would call Professor Durant a flaming Conservative or Evangelical, yet he pinpointed the root at the core of modern political and religious turmoil. Can we have a civilized society without God?
In an earlier election, a football stadium overflowing with people of a socialist bent was asked, “do you want God ruling?” The answer was a crescendo of NO!!
Things haven’t changed since 1944 or A.D. 33
